Being Grateful Saves Lives!
I Thessalonians 5:18 "... give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus!"
"The moment we find thankfulness in any area of life, is the moment we have not only conquered, but also put ourselves in position, to receive the blessings of God." - Don Schaefer
